Your future goals

Best moment of my life

Travelling to France with school earlier this year, and climbing the Eiffel Tower.

One word that describes you best


Persons I most admire and why

My grandparents, because they were able to create a comfortable life for themselves and my parents in Australia, after moving here with nothing.

Most embarrassing moment

Trying to run with a balloon between my legs for a novelty race at school.

lf I could say anything to the Greek community…

Teach children the Greek language, so they can communicate with other Greeks and their families.

Favourite place to go or hang out at

The city, because there are always new places to explore, and it’s easy to travel around.

Song that I can’t get out of my head at the moment: 

Neopolitan Dreams – Lisa Mitchell

Favourite Greek food


I can’t live without…

My family and friends around me, to support me and make me laugh.

If I was Kevin Rudd for a day I would…

Contribute enough money to the public education system so that all students have the opportunity to learn from well trained teachers, in well resourced classrooms.
